Maslow’s Hierachy

“Hey, you’re unhappy and unsatisfied and desperate to get out of a great job, you feel the bonds of marriage, you fear that you’re settling and not experiencing your best self. I get that. But there’s a huge difference between being unsatisfied or stuck and spinning in circles versus whats going on with you which is being content and looking for the next challenge. You’re feeling unhappy because you’re satisfied. You have a great job, you’re in great health, you have a great relationship, great friends, great dog, great cat, great house and now you want the next challenge and that’s all that’s going on. Don’t go ripping out the bottom rungs of the ladder you just worked so hard to climb (sell your house, quit your job, sabotage your relationship) because that’s not where the issue lies. There are a million therapists out there who are more than happy to go excavating in your misery but what you need more than anything is to find a meaningful next challenge.”
